Global Automotive Driving Simulators Market is estimated to reach USD 2787.22 million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 6.5% between 2019 and 2027  

Automotive driving simulator is a type of motion simulator with hardware components, including driving controls, screens, mirrors and resolution. Driving simulators are used in wide ranges of application like from entertainment to research and advance training. The growth of the Driving Simulator Market is influenced by factors such as shortage of skilled drivers, increased focus on R&D activities, and the growing safety measures for driving. The driver-less car technology is anticipated to focus on eliminating on-road fatalities with design algorithms likely to assist in decision-making processes in the vehicle.  

Currently developed by major technology players like Google, Volvo and many others, the simulation is also predicted to help in advance R&D in the connected car space. Moreover, superior neural network algorithms are developed to resemble the technologically connected world in the future driving the simulation market further in the connected car algorithmic research. Increasing innovation of autonomous vehicles is one of the major factors driving growth of the automotive driving simulator market.  

For instance, in 2017, Toyota Research Institute and the Computer Vision in Barcelona, Spain launched an open-source driving simulator named CARLA (Car Learning Act), which can be used by car manufacturers to test self-driving technologies under realistic driving conditions, thereby eliminating risks such as car crashes, extreme weather conditions, and others on road test. CARLA simulates a wide range of driving conditions and repeats dangerous situations endlessly. Furthermore, CARLA provides control over the vehicle in extreme weather conditions and based on the behaviour of other vehicles, traffic signals, and others. Hence, increasing innovation of simulators for autonomous cars have accelerated growth of car simulator segment in the global automotive driving simulator market.  

By product type, the global automotive driving simulator market can be segmented into Driving Training Simulator and Advanced Driving Simulator. The advanced driving simulator segment is the largest and the fastest growing driving simulator market. The advanced driving simulators are installed for research & development purposes of autonomous vehicles and are expected to experience rapid growth, as all OEMs are aiming to provide highly efficient vehicles. Module testing can be done with the help of advanced driving simulators in a safe environment and at relatively low cost. The advanced simulators include the entire structure of a real vehicle. They are usually manufactured in a dome shape and provide a 360° view for driving.  

The dome is assembled on a motion platform with a high degree of freedom—up to 9 degrees. Many OEMs such as Ford, Daimler, Toyota, Honda, and BMW have installed advanced driving simulators for R&D purposes. Also, rising adoption of driving simulators by vehicle manufacturers to design interior or to test advanced driving system is expected to aid in growth of the market. For example, in May 2018, the VI-grade GmbH declared that Subaru, a Japan-based automobile manufacturing company, adopted its Compact Driving Simulator solution. Increasing use of various in-vehicle infotainment systems such as satellite navigation systems, e-mail systems, and cell phones connectivity have also increased demand for simulators, as it plays a major role in assessing the safety and utility of such devices.  

On application side, the global automotive driving simulator market can be categorized into Research, Training, and Entertainment. The research segment held dominant position in the automotive driving simulator market and is expected to retain its dominance over the forecast period. Rising adoption of driving simulators for research activities have accelerated growth of the segment in the market. The entertainment segment is expected to exhibit the highest CAGR over the forecast period. Rising adoption of driving simulators in gaming industry plays a major role in growth of the segment in the market.  

Increasing advancement in processors and graphics have raised adoption of driving simulators in games, globally. Dirt Rally, Forza Horizon 3, Shift 2, Injection, Assetto Corsa, and iRacing are some of the racing simulation games. Additionally, rising trend of online games with advanced graphics is one of the major factors growing the demand for driving simulators. Driving simulators have wide range of applications such as in studies concerning driver behaviour, human machine interface, road and landscape design, and tunnel design.  

In terms of region, the global automotive driving simulator market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World. North America held the dominant position in the automotive driving simulator market and is projected to retain its dominance over the forecast period. U.S. and Canada are major regions driving growth of the automotive driving simulator market in this region. The government support to encourage utilization of driving simulators to avoid accidents and improve infrastructure to support these advanced technologies is expected to fuel growth of the market.  

Europe is estimated to be the largest global driving simulator market. In Europe, Germany is likely to be the largest driving simulation market in the region. The German automotive industry is an internationally renowned innovation hub. Approximately 70% of the world’s premium cars are manufactured by German OEMs. The region’s vibrant R&D landscape and technological excellence with over 100 automotive electronics-related study programs every year justify the region’s dominance in the field of connectivity, vehicle electronics, and self-driving cars. Additionally, the improvement of the intelligent transportation system would also drive the European driving simulator market.  

The Asia Pacific region is estimated to be the fastest growing market. Asia Pacific comprises emerging economies such as China and India, along with developed nations such as Japan, and is the largest market for automobiles. In recent years, the region has developed as a hub for automobile production. Infrastructural developments and industrialization in the emerging economies have opened new avenues, creating several opportunities for automotive OEMs. In addition, the growing awareness about driving safety measures has triggered the demand for driving simulators.  

The major players operating in the global automotive driving simulator market include Teknotrove Simulator System Pvt. Ltd, OKTAL, Cruden B.V., Mechanical Simulation Corporation, Dallara, Moog, AutoSim AS, IPG Automotive, ECA- Group, and Ansible Motion. Automotive manufacturers are using driving even more and car simulators to optimize design and streamline the R&D process. McLaren Group is one of the earliest and biggest users of driving simulation to engineer better passenger and commercial cars. The company tests any said vehicle under a variety of scenarios, and each vehicle is customized according to the requirements of individual clients.
